OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The Salvation Army is seeking nearly $12,000 in damages from Olympia after the city mistakenly claimed a broken sewer pipe had been on the charity’s property.

The Olympian reports (https://bit.ly/1LTRYCu ) that the lawsuit was filed July 9 in Thurston County Superior Court.

The city had notified The Salvation Army in March 2014 that a broken pipe causing a sinkhole had been on the charity’s property.

The Salvation Army then hired a contractor to repair the break, but it was later discovered that the broken pipe hadn’t actually been connected to their property. The city covered the costs of the remaining repairs.

The Salvation Army is asking the city for the $12,000 that they paid in repair costs.

A city representative says the case is under review.
